I could help out after the awards banquet to help distribute the auction items and with the cashiers and other stuff then :-)

I'll also be there Monday morning to help with the packing up ....

I will stick around around after the banquet/auction to help with logistics.

I would really love to volunteer to be the auctioneer and call the raffle but I have a question. If I am the auctioneer, does that not mean that I am ineligible to participate in the auction as a bidder? I would assume it would. As long as the list of items on the block is clearly detailed in advance so I can coach my guest to proxy bid for me (tell her what prices I'm willing to bid up to for each thing I'm interested in, etc) than I would be willing (and quite excited) to be the auctioneer. Let me know.

That would be a little tough to do. It goes pretty fast with the bids. The items on the block usually go for more than you can buy them for in general.

To be in the running, first you have ditch that K/M filter. The oil from the filter will fail your MAF.

So is the auction more like a charity/fundraiser style auction? If that's the case than I'll definitely do it.

My new MANN C37153 arrived yesterday and the k&n is no more. It has ceased to be. I'm more than happy to follow the advice of people who know more than me. I also don't feel like unnecessarily replacing my MAF sensor :-D

Fuel Economy: Who cares? It's a DIESEL! Great fuel economy comes as a bonus!
Question

Wouldn't being the auctioneer and also participating in the auction by bidding on items be considered a conflict of interest?? Just a thought. EDIT: Just saw you have a proxy, so I think no conflict exists and would be OK. In that case, go for it!

That was my concern precisely, and why I asked about proxy bidding. I'd only really be interested in procurement if the items were likely to be cheaper than I would otherwise get them from idparts, dieselgeek, etc. If that's not the case than I'd be very excited to be auctioneer. It's kind of been a fantasy of mine since I was a little kid.

Do you have any ideas for someone to actually do the reading of your trivia questions?
(You wouldn't happen to want to try out auctioneering/raffle mastering or trivia asking, would you?? )

Based on the current schedule:
Saturday, (at least until the drive time), and Sunday, I can be available for whatever menial or physical (please, no mental) tasks I can fulfill.

Weve always managed to work around the stuff people want to do in the past, so Im sure well make it work this time, too.
If someone can create the questions (and more crucially provide the accurate answers) I am quite happy to host the trivia. I apologize that I won't have time to work on the questions and answers myself.

And I can also make myself available for other tasks on Sat or Sun.

Thank you thank you! We will work on getting all of the questions and answers sorted out in advance.
